Sometimes fabrics will inspire a quilt design – this was definitely the case for my fairy tale themed quilts. One tree fabric led to another and several sketches later, I had a collection.
When I saw this fabric, I instantly thought of doing a silhouette design of Rapunzel and the prince climbing her hair. I used a Grunge black fabric for the design and quilted the bricks and singles on the tower for added texture.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair
I did create two Rapunzel quilts – not identical but similar. Iâ€™m sharing this one first because it didnâ€™t make the cut for the show (itâ€™s tucked away for backstock) and Iâ€™m feeling the purple colors today.
